The only caution is to not get too close, as the back of the waves toss you about a 1/2 boat length back toward the rig. It did take a little careful maneuvering to stay in the sweet spot, right at the edge of the cone of protection.
An added bonus is the lightening hit the lightening rods on the rig, not my boat,...And the flare stack provided some nice wamth.
